Afforestation of the dried bottom of the Aral Sea
Piloting a closed root system
About the national demonstration project
Despite the proved positive impacts, the growing of black saxaul seedlings in a closed root system has not been previously approved in Central Asia. Thus, the demo project in Kazakhstan is an innovative approach to combat the deforestation. It is comprised by the following tasks:
- Construction of 2 greenhouses and 1 shade-house with the total area of 140 m2, along with the plantation of 2,000 black saxaul seeds using the closed root system method;
- Replantation of seedling to the dried bottom of the Aral Sea in 1 year;
- Estimations on the volume of the water and electricity resources needed for growing seeds of saxaul in a closed root system;
- Monitoring of the growth and survival rate of saxaul seedlings replanted on the dried bottom of the Aral Sea comparing to other methods.
With that, the project supports the approval of the black saxaul cultivation method with closed root system by showcasing the most effective way for the Aral Sea bottom forestation.
